    Look. I am a fairly tolerant and forgiving guy. I can forgive the ridiculous areola-centered costume. I can tolerate the beneath bad acting and anything but special effects, but the complete dis on middle school band teachers is beyond the limit of my endurance. There, I’ve said it. Well, actually… There, I’ve written it.

    I can’t remember the last time I’ve read on IMDb.com about a film having so many goofs in it.

    Some spoilers below.

    Character error

    Rick doesn’t believe Talia’s claims that Sasquatch exists at first even though he had already seen him with his own two eyes.

    One of the hunters shoots Sasquatch with a rifle but misses, yet his fellow hunters congratulate him for his “good shot”.

    Revealing mistakes

    Muffy is an obviously stuffed prop when Sasquatch rips the dog in half.

    The police uniforms are visibly fake for several reasons. Not only are their uniforms obviously just brown shirts with tape on them, but they carry their guns in their hand because they don’t have holsters.

    Sasquatch constantly changes size throughout the film, either when his body is visibly stretched out by CGI or when it’s plainly obvious that he’s standing on an off-screen box.

    All of the “night-time” scenes were obviously filmed in daylight as seen by the bright and sunny sky and the look of the overexposed shots.

    The rock music in the background of the living room inexplicably turns off even though no characters in the scene turned off any visible radio.

    The “cave” where Sasquatch resides in is obviously a living room with the walls covered in black garbage bags.

    Rick’s Newspaper Company was obviously filmed at a high school, as seen by the students playing sports outside the windows.

    There are no extras in the restaurant scene.

    Obvious CGI door that Sasquatch breaks down when he tries to kill Rick’s grandmother, the real door can even be seen right next to it.

    An arm is clearly flung in the air when Sasquatch attacks Barbara off-screen yet she inexplicably has both arms in the next shot.

    Sasquatch apparently eats Barbara’s entire body after he kills her, bones and all, yet the concrete only shows a tiny squirt of blood and no other scraps. He’s also still eating the same arm of hers that he started with.

    Sasquatch’s first victim, the boyfriend, has his head smashed in. In the crime scene however, his head is inexplicably back in place.

    As of yet, none of the people involved with this movie have worked on any MST3K films, with the bulk of them being members of the Single Digits Club.

    Somebody put just a little too much detail emphasis into that…

    Also, this is one of the perils of doing ALL your cheesy-movie shopping on Prime: Prime shows ANYTHING. They don’t care if if it’s an amateur fan film somebody made it in with a vidcam and desktop graphics, and sold it to a digital licenser. That doesn’t make “Rollergator” an actual “movie” either.
    Are we here to pick on anybody’s beer-backyard home movie just because we can?

    Eric J.:

    Go to Rifftrax’s channel on Twitch.

    Some people have a fond affection for Rollergator, like some MSTies have for Torgo.

    Meanwhile, as I’ve mentioned to you before, if you can think of films you want Rifftrax to mock, email or tweet them.

    Otherwise, put up or hush up.

    I dunno, if MST3K and RiffTrax have taught me anything, it’s that no film is above criticism and mockery. Doesn’t matter if it’s a million dollar blockbuster or something a group of amateurs made using Windows Movie Maker. Even if it’s not a “real” movie (whatever that means) if it’s poorly made it’s fair game.
    The only exception I can think of are badly-made films are *meant* to be satire and revel in their badness. That’s the whole appeal. But Poe’s Law often comes into play and it’s not always obvious if a film is supposed to be bad or was made in earnest.

    Exception #2: Bad comedies, or perhaps comedies in general.

    But it’s still HOW you play the game, which edges dangerously toward Mike-is-a-bully territory (also considering the bored, snarky, impatient, depressed delivery of the gags we’ve been getting from RT for quite a few years now):
    Going after a big film–or even just an earnest 50’s-60’s B-movie that genuinely put its heart into thinking it’d get a drive-in audience on Friday night–is different from just grabbing any old Prime movie, just because some porn director had a weekend to shoot a talking-pet kiddie movie for digital, and then taking down their pants and wizzing on it just seems sort of pointless, petty, and letting off a few ugly personal issues about why they need to do this act.

    In the old days when B-movies still played theaters, movie critics didn’t review EVERY movie: They’d review the big movies, but the cheap B-action and slasher movies, they might send one of the cub reporters or interns to review, because, well, life’s too short. More to the point, though, how would it look if a critic picked out all the shortcomings of Raging Bull one week, and then did an entire review of why we shouldn’t bother with My Bloody Valentine? The critic was conscious it would make him look like he had nothing better to do that week.

    TBF, I watched a cult-film documentary the other night, and one of the fans did actually mention “Suburban Sasquatch” as an example something culty you could come across in the back streaming alleys, like you used to be able to find them on the Blockbuster DVD shelves when everything else was out.
    But it comes down to MK&B genuinely sounding, and acting, bored with their own act that they’ve forgotten why they even started or where the boundaries of the comedy is anymore. If their entire act has disintegrated into dumpster-diving Prime, seeing “Oh, look, David DeCoteau’s done another talking pet movie, let’s trash it with running jokes about the last one!”, that’s when it’s time to think about wrapping it up and retiring to that little cheese farm in St. Paul.
